Launch of Police approved GPRS Fuel-oil Tank Alarm

Compound Security are pleased to announce the launch of the worlds first GPRS fully monitored security system for oil and diesel storage tanks.

May 10, 2011 - PRLog -- At the request of many of the UK’s police officers, CSS has brought together the excellent oil level detection system from Watchman and combined it with state of the art GPRS communication systems to create the first fully ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) monitored fuel-oil storage tank security system.
With theft of oil and diesel from domestic, commercial and industrial storage tanks increasing rapidly due to the poor economy, ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) have given the GPRS Tank Alarm their full accreditation and support.
With a price of around £500 + VAT and £180 + VAT per year data and monitoring charges, the GPRS Tank Alarm has the potential to prevent tens of thousands of fuel-oil thefts per year.
The GPRS Tank Alarm will be officially launched at the security expo IFSEC at the NEC on 16th May 2011.

Further information
CSS are the inventors of the Mosquito device designed to disperse teens from loitering.
CSS are now one of the leading suppliers of external detection and signalling GSM / GPRS equipment in Europe.
